Song explaining how to pronounce Eyjafjallajvkull a YouTube hitMay 13th, 2010 - 3:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 13 (ANI): A song explaining the pronunciation of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajvkull is fast becoming a rage on YouTube.
The volcano made headlines after it erupted last month leaving passengers stranded across European airports.
And now Icelandic singer Eliza Newman is helping people to pronounce the name of the volcano.
Her video has racked up more than 200,000 hits on YouTube.
Playing the ukulele, Newman croons:
Eyjafjallajokull is a long, long name
For such a small glacier, with such notorious fame
And Eyjafjallajokull has caused quite a stir
And no-one can fly anywhere except the birds
Please stop it Eyjafjallajokull
“The volcano has caused a lot of problems around the world, not least with people who haven’t been able to say it,” the Sun quoted Newman, as saying.
She added: “Anything I can do to help people get their tongue round the word is fantastic. Little songs and rhymes always help.” (ANI)
